Tag Archive: 1991


Hey! Been working on this post all evening/night, and finally done, I don’t want to wait any longer to publish it. Inspired by Loudwire’s list of 10 unforgettable crowd participation moments (which you can find here), I wanted to make a list myself. It contains my favorites, including many of the suggestions made in the comment section on YouTube, which, in my opinion, were far better than many of the one’s on Loudwire’s list.
This is in no particular order, so don’t come complaining about that to me. I’m doing it this way because many of them are equally great in different ways, with their own qualities and moods which they evoke.

Avenged Sevenfold – Unholy Confessions (Live in Hershey, Pennsylvania, USA, 2014)

 

Foo Fighters – My Hero (Live in Bogotá, Colombia, 2015)

 

Linkin Park – In The End (Live at Rock Am Ring in Mendig, Germany, 2004)

 

Metallica – Creeping Death (Live in Moscow, Russia, 1991)

 

Slash, Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators – Sweet Child O’ Mine (Live in Mumbai, India, 2015)

 

Disturbed  – Down With The Sickness (Live at Rock Am Ring in Mendig, Germany, 2008)

 

Evanescence  – My Immortal (Live in Paris, France, 2004)

 

Rammstein – Du Hast (Live at Download Festival, Leicestershire, England, 2013)

 

AC/DC – Thunderstruck (Live in Buenos Aires, Argentina, 2011)

 

Machine Head – Darkness Within (Live in London, England, 2014)

 

So, here you have it. I personally think these are just as good or even better than the list Loudwire made, even though several of the ones on Loudwire’s list were great (I couldn’t just copy it either, could I?). I could go on and on about things you should notice, like the band’s reaction to the fans, or the sheer loudness and harmony of the crowd. This kind of interaction between artists and fans is an extraordinary phenomenon.
I want to know what are your contribution(s) to the list, what do you think I should check out? Are there even better versions of the artists and songs I’ve chosen? Please leave a comment below.

 

“Music, my savior, save me”
(Darkness Within – Machine Head)

 

For today’s post I decided to write about one of the classics; Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana. The song was published in 1991 on the album Nevermind. Here are the lyrics.

The guitar riffs and solo are just awesome, Kurt Kobain’s voice is impeccable and the lyrics are cool (and somewhat random, I mean “A mosquito, my libido” hello?). This is just as I said, a classic. There is so much to like about it, and not much to say, because I have so much respect for it, that I don’t exactly know what to say about it to honor it right. But I think it’s brilliant as a piece of original music.
I like this song so much that I’ve decided to quote it twice:

 

“And I forget just why I taste 
Oh yeah, I guess it makes me smile 
I found it hard, it’s hard to find 
Oh well, whatever, never mind”


“With the lights out, it’s less dangerous

Here we are now, entertain us
Life is stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us”
(Nirvana – Smells Like Teen Spirit)

 

Hi there! Today’s post nr. 101, and this one I’m dedicating to another dear friend of mine, who’s favorite band is Metallica. I will be doing a review on their song Nothing Else Matters off their self titled album (Metallica), also known as The Black Album, released in 1991. The lyrics are here.

I like the intro, I think it’s very beautiful guitar playing.
I absolutely adore the guitar solo. I feel it deep in my soul. The lyrics are very deep and well executed by vocalist James Hetfield. There’s not much more to say about this song, except for that it’s absolutely beautiful and great, just like my friend that I’m writing this for. I love it.

 

“Never cared for what they say
Never cared for games they play
(Nothing Else Matters – Metallica)
